brain recovery after cocaine

I have done cocaine weekly for the last two years. I am no longer using but am wondering if my brain will be able to return to its normal state or close to it one day, or if it will be forever changed. Did the amount of time that I used cocaine cause really bad damage to my brain or is two years of off and on use not so bad.

Is there anyway to have my brain scanned to know how much damage has been done.

The damage to the brain will be evident in time, and there is no accurate way to scan how it has been paralyzed. It is reported that cocaine use can severely affect your brain process.
